Aura: Maryuuinkouga Saigo no Tatakai

Aura: Maryuuinkouga Saigo no Tatakai

Ichirou Satou used to spend his life dreaming, pretending to be a great fantasy hero. Pretend heroics aren't much protection from bullies and social ridicule, however, and ultimately his worried family was forced to transfer him to a new school. Now determined to follow a different path and fit in, Ichirou thought he'd managed to give up his old fantasies. Until he encountered Ryouko Satou, who's even more deeply immersed in her own imaginary world than Ichirou was. And bullied just as cruelly for it. If he stands up for Ryouko, Ichirou could destroy the new life he's trying to build. But at the same time, the intensity of her fantasies and predicament reminds him all too vividly of the person he once was. And, in the end, it may just be that the only one who can really rescue this damsel in distress is the dream hero that Ichirou thought he had buried forever in AURA.

Both explore the same set-up- guy used to be delusional, but finally managed to outgrow it. Now he's faced with his past self in the form of cute girl. He can't help but be involved in her fantasies and their struggle with reality begins.

Aura takes a more dramatic approach to the story while Chuu2 stays light and funny, but both are romances at their core. If you’ve seen one of them and want to see the story play out in a different way (with mostly the same main characters) check out the other.

Both are about a male who used to be into a delusional world, now he tries to live a 'normal' life in a way. Before he meets a not-so-normal girl which then expands into a whole group of these characters. The main storyline is just about the same and both focus on the development of love between the main two characters. So in conclusion if you like Aura then you would like Chuunibyou and the other way round.

K-On!

K-On!

It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!

Well, honestly, there are two reasons: they're both from Kyoto Animation, and they're full of MOE!!  But seriously, both series are the type that are just filled with warm feelings that make you laugh (sometimes to the point of crying) and they also make you want to hug somebody or something and cuddle. I'm a guy, by the way....

With Zange gate-crashing and securing the lead role for herself within moments, and Meguru coming up with the script, filming is ready to begin! However, with stilted lines, a meager budget and even the weather turning against them, the future of the art club’s movie is far from secure.

Both animes have male protagonist dealing with weird, awkward, "unique" female characters.  Both animes are romance, comedy that are really fun to watch (they also have a big ending with a lot of drama).  I liked both and I feel like if you liked one you'll definitely like the other.  Both are must watch animes if you lke the over the top female characters that drive the male characters crazy.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT

Kodaka, Sena, Yozora and the rest of the Neighbors Club are back, and continue on their quest to learn what it’s like to make friends. There’s never a dull day for the gang, whether they’re debating the merits of “family friendly” yaoi anime, having a soda party or even heading to the amusement park. And whether Kodaka is enduring an especially awkward bath session with Pegasus or hosting Maria for an overnight sleepover, one thing’s for sure: he and the Neighbors Club are in for plenty of misadventures!

Haganai NEXT and Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai are similar because of their socially awkward characters who are just outright hilarious. The main charcters in these two series are just entering the world of high school and are attempting to find ways to find friends and abandon their socially awkward history. In the process of doing so, they come across a set of girls who are even more awkward then themselves and eventually form a club with them where we witness a load of hilarious events.

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san

The ordinary becomes extraordinary, as our protagonist Mahiro Yasaka – an average high school student – suddenly encounters a Nyarlathotep: a formless Cthulhu deity of chaos, who decides to take form as a silver-haired human-like alien. This Nyarlathotep – aptly named Nyarko – may seem like a normal gal, but there’s much more to her than meets the eye! In their encounters together, she ends up saving Mahiro's life, inextricably tying their lives together…

Both anime are rare examples of the scenario where the guy beats the girls for misbehaving (it's usually just a knock on the head) rather than the other way around (which is so very common in shounen manga and anime).
